Insulted? Good excuse to kill some people...

The pope "insulted" the Moslems.

"Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached."

As DovBear correctly pointed out, the Catholic Church are the last ones to be giving mussar to anyone about moral behaviour, evil and death by the sword. Crusades? The Spanish Inquisition that no one ever expected? The Church has it's own wonderful history of spreading death and destruction in it's name.

However, what is totally unbelievable is that Moslems behave like two-year olds when insulted. Why is the Moslem knee-jerk reaction to an insult, to go out, riot, burn down churches, and wound and kill people? Can't these people CHILL OUT.

Christians seem to have grown up over the years, and can take an insult without going ballistic. The Monty Python "Life of Brian" movie definitely showed that while many Christians in the UK were insulted by the film, they didn't go out and riot.

This blogger seems to have summed it up nicely: “Islam is a religion of peace… and if you don’t agree with us, we’ll kill you!”

And look at us, the Jews.

We've been insulted and accused of things for thousands of years! From being responsible for killing Egyptian gods (sheep), to being responsible for killing the Christian's god (or his son)...using Christian baby blood for our matzot on Pesach...using chewing gum spiked with sex hormones on arabs...there isn't nothing that hasn't been thrown at us.

And how do we Jews react?

We just smile,

laugh,

sit back,

and raise world interest rates by one or two percent.


Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael

It is rather infuriating.

On the one hand I agree with you, but perhaps if we took ourselves half as seriously as the Arabs take themselves, we wouldn't be in this Gaza/Shomron disengagement/Hezbollah/Kidnapped soldiers mess...

Sara with NO H said...

Mevaseretzion: that's not true. you think running around mach 10 with your hair on fire and blaming everyone else in the world for everything is taking yourself seriously? As soon as this pope things wears off they're go right back to blaming the jews for every demise. At least we take responsibility for our own actions and in judaism there's no scapegote. We're to blame for our own actions and we don't run around blaming anyone other than ourselves.

Mevaseretzion: The mess doesn't have to do with us being insulted! It has to do with us not retaliating WHEN WE SHOULD.

There's a wolrd of difference between responding for a legitimate reason, and for responding when insulted.

Jack: If the name hadn't already been taken by such a whimsical blogger -- I'd say the Muslims act as Psychotoddlers.

You forgot "turning the other cheek"

Eshet Chayil said...

you mean you don't put blood in your matzeh?

PsychoToddler said...

The Jihadists give Psychotoddlers a bad name.

I think it's interesting they bombed a bunch of Anglican Churches.

Uhh...HELLO...the Pope is Catholic...

Josayah said...

I guess , that if pple take a look arround and relax , that wont be much hard for them , the muslims and the jews are alike , from the same genetic seed , that abraham had thrown in this earth , and that why both of them meet against christianity , Jews Killed Jesus , because it was politics back then just like nowadays we have assassination but that doesnt make jews killers. Jews created Islam and through this religion they changed history and ultered humanity into decades of immorrality , who created mohamad ? a syriac jew rabbi who wanted to join the xsianty and the jews in a new way and mohamad was the perfect pick. But what the church did and still is being a part to lick the ass of the jews and put christians in a judeochristianism theology , No Jesus was not a jew , because simply he was not of them otherwise why they should kill him it is written in the so called bible , but my conclusion jews and muslims and christians please wake and take a look arround , You are worst that pagans and if you truelly believe in God , why there is no peace even among you and inside your relgion.

Am I crazy, but I did not follow josayah's comment at all. I have no idea what you justsaid.

Jameel @ The Muqata said...

Sheva: I totally agree with you. I tried reading twice and still had no clue what he was rambling about. I was going to delete his comment but decided that leaving it up was better just to demonstrate what idiots are out there...

Lurker said...

Just for the sake of accuracy, the statement in question is a quote from the Byzantine emperor Manuel II Paleologus, in a debate he held with a Persian Muslim in 1391. The Pope quoted the statement in the context of a lecture he was giving that addressed the differences between Christianity and Islam on the subject of human reason and God.

The adherents of the "Religion of Peace" are not going to "chill out" until such time as they are defeated and destroyed in an all-out war with the West. And that war won't come until after the Muslims inflict a horrible catastrophe on the western world whose proportions will dwarf 9/11 into utter insignificance. And that day is coming soon...

Jameel @ The Muqata said...

Lurker: Wow...seems like you're Mr. Doomsday this evening, aren't you?

Eishes Chayil: Of course we use blood in the Matzot -- Vampire Shmura.

The back of the hill said...

Vampire matzes? What about the vegetarians! Meat is murder!

Hee hee hee. ;-D

Regarding josayah's little interjection, that is the funniest thing I've seen in ages.

I wonder what his original language is.

"Can't these people CHILL OUT." --> Exactly what I thought when I was watching the news last night. The worlds attitude would change if their reactions were less 'bull-in-china-shop' violent.

Cyrano said...

Does your 2 yr old really "go out, riot, burn down churches, and wound and kill people?" Mine just throws tantrums on the floor.

bec said...

i know it's old already, but how ironic that the way the muslims demonstrate that their religion is not one of violence is by engaging in more violence?????
oy. they really need to learn the meaning of the word "hypocrisy."

and thanks for leaving josayah's quote up. it sadly reminded me of my early 20s when i was teaching high school english. essays like that would have been given an "f" without further comment.
